Rename cn-attribute with ADSI does not work with the movehere function

I am working with wscript (ADSI) and I am 'looping' because to move an user I have to rename due to a comma, but to rename I have to use the same MoveHere function...

- we created users with the following canonical name: "Smith, John"
- if we want to move the user to antother OU or rename the user with the Movehere-function, it fails due to the comma in the canonical name.... So I can't move or rename....

any help?

So the output would be like " LDAP://cn=Smith, John, OU=User, DC=mycompany, DC=com"

As you can see the comma is the problem... because the MoveHere function 'thinks' that I specify an other OU.

Any ideas how I am able to rename or move an user?

Kind Regards,

Hai,

Try it in this way
1. "LDAP://cn=\"Smith, John\", OU=User, DC=mycompany, DC=com"
2. "LDAP://cn='Smith, John', OU=User, DC=mycompany, DC=com"
3. "LDAP://cn=\#Smith, John, OU=User, DC=mycompany, DC=com"

TO embed quotes inside a string you must use:

"LDAP://cn=" + chr(34) + "Smith, John" + chr(34) + ", OU=User, DC=mycompany, DC=com"

All you need to do is comment the comma out with a backslash.  

LDAP://cn=Smith\, John, OU=User, DC=mycompany, DC=com
